We had only one tip yesterday and it came through for us.

We went with the Wild to win in regulation against the Coyotes and they did winning 5-2.  Zuccarello scored twice for the Wild in the win.

The Jets beat the Sens 3-2 and the win was their 4th in the last 5 games.   With the win the Jets now have a 3 point lead over the Oilers for 2nd place in the North Divison.

The Flames beat the Habs 4-1 for their 3rd straight win.   The win moved the Flames to 4 points behind the Canadiens for the 4th and final playoff spot in the North Divison.

The Avalanche held on to beat the Blues 4-3.  Dubnyk made his debut for the Avs in this game and picked up the win.  They are going to need him moving forward as Grubauer will be out 2 weeks after testing positive for Covid-19.

The Knights beat the Kings 6-2 and with the win Fleury moved past Eddie Belfour for 4th place on the career win list.  He is only 4 behind Roberto Luongo for 3rd place and could do that this season.

The final game of the night was the Ducks vs the Sharks and the Ducks beat the Sharks for the second game in a row winning 4-1.

It’s crazy to think that the season is drawing to a close with teams having around 12 games left.  It’s just over a month until the season ends.

Flyers vs Penguins

Graeme wanted nothing to do with this so if this doesn’t come through it’s on me.

I’ll be going with over 6 for this game.

They have played each other 5 times this season and all 5 have gone over.  The first game was a 6-3 Flyers win, then another Flyers win 5-2.  The Pens won the 3rd game 5-2, lost the next 4-3 and won the 5th game 4-3.

Anytime these teams play each other its a good game being the Battle of Pennsylvania.

With the 5 games between them going over and the long history they have I like this to go over.

Over 6 incl OT/SO

Canada: 1.91 Odds at Pinnacle Sports
USA: -115 Odds at BetOnline
Everyone Else: 1.91 Odds at Pinnacle Sports

(Odds correct as of 2021/04/15 9:56:26 AM EST but are subject to change.)

Jets vs Leafs

The Jets are playing well winning 4 of their last 5 games.  The Leafs are slumping right now lossing their last 2 games but have gone 7-1-2 over their last 10 games.

The Jets have been playing alot lately including tonight’s game being their 4th in 6 days so fatigue is going to catch up to them.

The Jets have lost the last 2 games against the Leafs.  And with the March 13th game being the exception the Leafs have been the better team when they play the Jets.

Maple Leafs in regulation

Thanks Scott, solid tips.

Donnie V

Thanks Scott. Just a heads up Matthews just reported injured.

Im gonna avoid that game for that reason. Cheers

Graeme

“Graeme wanted nothing to do with this so if this doesn’t come through it’s on me.”

Just to clarify it’s not that I hate the bet or anything. It checks all the boxes. I’ve just had numerous overs lately that check all the boxes and have stunk it up.

As mentioned by Donnie – Matthews is out. We wouldn’t advise hopping on the Leafs anymore. That one came outta nowhere.

Western Rattlers

The other day, discussion arose on the idea of a “lock” bet. Today, we have one of the lessons in why it makes little sense to betters or bookies. If/when it can happen, the odds are extremely low, and nobody will bet it >>>
Example today: Washington on the reverse puckline of +1.5. Is that a lock? BET365 has it at odds of -1600 (very low payout odds). That’s probably around odds of -1.02. Technically, +1.5 may qualify as a “lock” bet, but I think betters want “lock” bets to be because of information they’ve discovered in depth, something to profit off of, and odds better than -1.40 or so.

Betters expect to pay a premium for “highest predictability”, but to agree to bet, some acceptable level of return must be offered, because in hockey, NOTHING is 100% guaranteed; the Rangers beat Washington 5-2 on March 30, and Boston beat them 4-2 on April 8. Boston is very close to the Rangers in the standings so far. Washington is on my permanent “never ever bet” list, so not touching it.

I don’t think any team in the NHL is likely to produce a “lock” situation this season that betters will be interested in. If you know otherwise, please tell us!

The CAPS are a LOCK 🔒!!!

SanDiegoBruins

😂😂😂

NORBACCA

I eat my words…..ZERO EXCUSES 💣💥🔥

Geir Aage R Jensen

I am on over 5 goals in Rangers game with 5 U. Prediction 8-3 to Devils 😂

Eric Vilhelm Børgesen

Interesting night ! Closing in on the last spots and who takes home ice adv!
The picks for me tonight;
NYI incl OT (NYI have Bruins number this year, and Bruins dont look them selves this year – Z effect my guess)
Pens-Flyers game over 5,5 (agree with you all on this) or Pens reg
Caps PL (-1) the Will tumble Sabres who dont like playing Caps in recent games. Or TT over 3,5

Lean;
Devils inkl OT (stats tell that Devils have NYR number on away games) BUT this is a must win game for NYR to close the gap on Bruins. Hard one to call but value is on Devils incl OT.
**UPDATE** looking at recent games I believe NYR are the best Bet, bases on recent H2H form. Devils have Only gone into OT 3 times away. And likely not gonna pull this one off with their form

SanDiegoBruins

losing Z was a huge mistake. Guy’s still a top 4 D

Eric Vilhelm Børgesen

100%
He Will look towards Boston with a wink in his eye at the board who let him go.

SanDiegoBruins

Two further factors in Isles favor: Rask starting. He hasn’t seen NHL action in a month of Sundays. Look how Raanta got lit up last night. Second, Kyle Palmieri and Travis Zajac

SanDiegoBruins

Pens reg – It’s not that the Pens are that good, it’s that the Flyers are THAT bad. For whatever reason (I’ll give you two: Hart and Elliott) the Flyers are in a tailspin and there’s no hope coming.

Isles ML – great value for a team that just picked up Kyle Palmieri and Travis Zajac and are facing a goalie who hasn’t seen NHL action since last season, actually March 7 (last full game), but it seems that way. Two of his four losses have been to the Islanders this season.

Caps PL – The worst team in the league just lost their best player for the rest of the season. Caps are en fuego and going for 4th W in a row. Their 14 goals across the last two games is the most they’ve scored in any two game stretch since 2003! And if they need any further motivation, Nick Backstrom is playing in his 1,000th game and you know there is money on the board. Sorry Sabres, probably not your night.

My Only concern on the Caps game is the recent H2h there have been 3/5 games been decided Only by one goal (Of which two went to OT). Complacentcy is key for Caps to Roll Sabres over. Control that element and Caps Will have another 6-0 tennis match !

SanDiegoBruins

Valid point, but here’s what’s changed:
– trade deadline has come and gone: Caps improved, Sabres got worst
– Eichel out for season
– Caps on hot streak, outscoring opponents 18-5 in L3
– Backstrom 1000th game
– Varlamov in net for #Isles tonight in Boston. He’s 5-0-0 with one shutout, a 1.57 GAA and a .949 save pct. against the Bruins this season.

Eric Vilhelm Børgesen

Lets get this! ➰🔛🔝 🕺🏼

SanDiegoBruins

Varlamov in net for #Isles tonight in Boston. He’s 5-0-0 with one shutout, a 1.57 GAA and a .949 save pct. against the Bruins this season.
